HISTORICAL CITY

Present-day Tarquinia was originally called Corneto up until 1872 when it changed its name to Corneto-Tarquinia after its annexation to the Kingdom of Italy, and then it changed to Tarquinia in 1922. A stroll in the historic town centre surrounded by an impressive circle of walls will allow you to admire churches, palaces, towers and convents in Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architectural styles, testifying to the grandeur and significance of the town of Corneto, wavering between temporal power and religious power from the 12th century to the Modern Age.
